Single purpose API
Recently launched, Everlapse, is a free iOS app for sharing images and slideshows. Communicating with images is already a winning formula in the world of social networking, but Everlapse makes it a little more interesting by providing something that is a bit more stimulating than just static photos, but not quite as complicated as videos. In a nutshell, it allows users to create and contribute to clips which are made up of various photos and displayed as a slideshow. By providing the Everlapse API, the company also makes it possible for developers to integrate this functionality with other applications.
